When we started to think about the world we would want to see in 2030, we first envisaged hover cars and jet packs and all sorts of cool technological advances.
Then we thought it might be a good idea to make 3-day weekends, and homework illegal.
After more contemplation we realized that the most beautiful 2030 we can imagine, is a world in which we can all feel safe, respected, healthy and happy.
We would love to see an end to pollution, a cure for incurable illnesses and food for the hungry.
We want to see people treat each other equally, no matter their race or religion. We would love to live in a world where people can talk out their differences rather than fight over them.
The funny thing is, the majority of our vision of 2030 could really be achieved today if we all put our minds and hearts into it.
So we ask you grown-up types, to make an effort to take small steps every day so that by 2030 the grown-up types of tomorrow – that’s us – will see these goals accomplished.
And our future set in perfect harmony.
